Bell's Swastika Laundry[edit]

As I recall, the laundry merged with dry-cleaners called Bells at some point and, in the early 1960s, the vans carried symbols of both companies. Anybody got definitive information on this? JXM 23:35, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

I don't remember and cannot find anything online on Bell's. Keep looking. ww2censor 02:22, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
I distinctly remember seeing a Swastica Laundry shop window in 1976, probably somewhere south of the city center (I remember seeing it as I rode buses from Dun Laoghaire). Did they have such outlets or was it an independent laundry sprung up after the original company closed? According to this http://comeheretome.wordpress.com/2010/04/26/swastika-laundry-1912-1987/, the co. closed in 1987 which matches my memories. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spamhog (talkcontribs) 13:29, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Notability[edit]

Is this really notable at all? I say not. ΤΕΡΡΑΣΙΔΙΩΣ(Ταλκ) 07:33, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Colour of swastika[edit]

I have just carried out a general overhaul of this article. One of the changes I have made is to the claim that the vans bore a black swastika on a white background: I have reversed that to white-on-black, on the evidence of the two colour and three black-and-white photos included in the "Come here to me!" article (all of which which definitely show a white swastika, though the background could possibly be a dark red). It's possible that black-on-white was also used, but the only source provided was the photo in the "Electric/Battery Powered Vehicles" article, which, as the article explains, is of a repainted Dartry van, mocked up for a TV series: some better evidence is needed if this is to go back in.
